Course 2: Co-creating the SUMP vision

After setting-up the project
management structure and investigating the regional and national framework for
SUMPs, it’s time to plan for how to get the right stakeholders onboard. The second e-course focuses on the
importance of co-creating the common
vision for SUMP in cooperation with different stakeholders and citizens. Developing
a common vision
with citizens and other interest groups is a crucial start
of the SUMP process. It creates ownership and acceptance, when citizens´ ideas
and viewpoints are considered. Using the community´s knowledge can provide
valuable input for the city administration in developing their SUMP.

The course will introduce basic principles for mapping
relevant stakeholder for the process.
It will also give advice what to
take into consideration when cooperating with institutional stakeholders and
how to prepare
a public
participation and communication strategy.
The course presents concrete
examples of methods and tools that
can be used in workshops and events with different stakeholder groups to
support co-creation of the SUMP vision
